Abstract :
Ashbee founded the Guild and School of Handicraft in London in 1888, and through relations with American craftsmen active in England, as well as through publications, the metalwork produced there influenced American metalwork into the early decades of the 20th c. The author concludes that the 'Guild of Handicraft was a community whose influence significantly altered the appearance and fabrication methods of American silver, other metalwork, and jewelry while generating sweeping changes in the shop organization, training, locale, and social interaction of those who produced it. Its practices, adopted for both high-minded and commercial purposes...played a major role in defining America's arts and crafts movement'. ;
